Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm so lucky to be able to say that I love where my life has taken
me and am looking for someone special to share it with. For me,
finding that person isn't about creating a list of must-have
personality traits; it's about a sense of knowing when it feels
right. I'd like to find someone who's equally passionate about what
they do and take what they do seriously. However, it's so important
to still be able to take time to get away, relax, and be with the
people you love.
I'm a passionate, motivated, and hard working person who grew up in
a great family. I love to travel and am lucky that I've had so many
opportunities to experience new places. I love cooking and find it
therapeutic somehow (even grocery shopping... is that
I've always had healthy relationships, but just haven't found the
right person yet. I'm definitely willing to wait for something
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been teaching for the last 8 years - I'm the conductor of an
orchestra there and the director of piano studies. I also have my
own private piano studio. On the weekends, I love to go out with
friends to restaurants, comedy shows, or the movies. I recently
closed on my first home, so it's been very busy but exciting.
Before teaching, I was performing professionally in orchestras,
including a number of tours through South America and Europe (as a
bassoonist). I'm glad I was able to have those experiences, but I'm
happy to be focusing on teaching now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a good listener and I like to think I give pretty sound advice.
My friends know to come to me if they want honest (and tactful)
feedback, and they also know they can come to me without ever
feeling judged. I also love to make other people feel
I think I communicate well, and I'm pretty good at being empathetic
and understanding of other people's perspectives, as well as
articulating my own - so disagreements never turn disrespectful or
dramatic. I could never function that way!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I'm very comfortable in any situation. Also that I
smile a lot... :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My number one favorite thing to do if I'm going out is to try a new
restaurant. Some favorite places include Sarma, Lineage,
Cuchi-Cuchi, Sportello, and so many more. I love spending time with
people over good food and a glass of wine!
I love to read all kinds of books, so it's hard for me to choose a
favorite. The same thing goes for movies...
